CAS(E) This Sketch Card

CAS(E) This Sketch #150 Challenge

I was surfing around looking at challenges the other day and this one caught my eye but it wasn’t till today I hit upon what I’d like to make:

It all started with a dryer sheet and went from there …





Punch – Martha Stewart

Distress Ink – Tim Holtz

Stamp – Holiday Trendz

Embossing Powder

Glitter Cardstock

Pearl Accents


I really had fun with this card, with the exception of having a major argument with my sewing machine, after which I discovered I had simply mis-threaded it {insert blush here}  At any rate, it got a good thorough cleaning which was well overdue.  I started with blank cardstock and used some Tumbled Glass Distress Ink and graduated it from one side of the card to the other.

Next I ironed a used dryer sheet and trimmed it to fit the card, then sewed.  I think the texture of the sheets lends itself to all sorts of exciting ideas.  Then I stamped and embossed the sentiment, adding some distress ink as a drop shadow beneath the lettering.  I trimmed the sentiment on the cardstock in a freeform shape using some sort of metal plate which is supposed to be for hemming pants (oh MY!)  Like I’d hem pants.  Though it confounds my way handsome husband as he’d like me to hem his pants.  I do welcome him to my machine though.  Well I have done that for him a time or two, but its certainly not my favorite pastime. Though I can be bribed. 

So after that this I cut a slightly larger shape with the glitter cardstock and glued it behind, then placed it on the card using foam tape to bump it out. 

Next I punched three snowflakes using a Martha Stewart punch.  Then punched three tiny floral shapes using a dollar store punch, then added some pearls, gluing the three together and then affixing them to the card.  Voila!

I hope you have enjoyed your visit!
